eBook: Looking Beyond 100G

Driven by a never-ending appetite for bandwidth from businesses and consumers, service providers have been in the process of upgrading their backbone and core networks to both 40G and even 100G. But even as service providers begin migrating to 100G, they are looking at what lies beyond that speed.

Already, a number of trials have been conducted by both AT&T and Verizon, with the latter recently conducting a 21.7 Tbps trial on over 1,503 kilometers (934 miles) of standard single mode field fiber. At the same time, industry groups, including the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) are looking at emerging techniques, including superchannels with Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM).

In this eBook we'll discuss the strategies, emerging standards and technological advancements that lie beyond 100G.
